Mike Sullivan regularly teaches introductory statistics, and this experience has helped him develop a understanding of what today’s students need to succeed in the course. Statistics: Informed Decisions Using Data, Fourth Edition, provides tools that help students see the bigger picture and make informed decisions. In addition, Mike’s contributions to the supplements and technology program make it easier to teach a multi-dimensional, engaging course.
